Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

God, I wish I didn't have to register with TOR to read this. Call it a privacy quirk, but I don't like giving out personal info, and TOR registration requires both my e-mail address and my age. I gotta ask--Why my age? Is it so they can tailor e-mails to people born in my generation? Is it so that they can otherwise use the info or somehow sell it? If they just need to know if I'm 21 or older, they could just ask "Are you 21 years old or older'?.

Good news is that it will be available to read on the Tor.com website sometime next week ahead of the holiday!  They sent it out just to registered newsletter subscribers as an early sneak peek.

 

Hope you the story!  It's related loosely to "The Doom of Love in Small Spaces" and "The Santaman Cycle" from my collection LONG WALKS LAST, FLIGHTS AND OTHER STRANGE JOURNEYS...which should be available for your Nook like any day now....

Hi Ken, I've downloaded it and am searching for a little free time to read it. 

Can't wait, I know it'll be great

 

Happy Holidays to you and your wife and lovely girls
